1. I actually really love cereal….alot. I eat it all the time. I mix and match (one cereal is too boring). Did you know there are gluten free cheerios in the world now? Life changed.
2. The quote is adorable. Why be a plain jane when you can pop out like Fruit Loops? (Now you’re probably thinking I’m a fruit loop for taking you down this road, but eh that’s ok).
I wanted to write about my work as of late. I work in 3 places: 2 part time jobs in 2 different cities nearby and then I also work from home. A lot of people ask me if that gets stressful or confusing because I am moving around alllllll the time. And truthfully no! I’m the kind of person that likes to mix it up. It keeps my schedule from getting too mundane and I’m never bored because I’m always mixing up the type of work I’m doing.
In my design courses in college we started to recognize each other’s work without knowing who made it. You really start to have a style and let your inner creativity show through. My design style is true for my clothes, accessories, graphic design and even my decorating. What word would people use to describe my creations? COLOR.
I don’t like flashy things, but I do love colorful things. My room and my work spaces all have pops of color, floral accents and owls (because owls). I’m a big Pinterest addict and I always love seeing clean cut decor with lots of white space and minimal design….but even though I love it I can’t bring myself to design this way! I like to surround myself with the colors that reflect my mood and projects. Maybe that’s a nerdy design thing, but it’s true!
My work space defines the type of work I can get done. After learning about WeWork and their work spaces I really started to think more about my own spaces and take pride in the places I work. It is important to feel comfortable and inspired by the things around you and I think that is something WeWork does well! If you are just starting out, a freelancer, a small business, a startup, etc, their shared office spaces could definitely be a great resource for you.
Don’t know how to make a place your own? Pick a quote, a favorite picture or a piece of art and start by putting it on your desk. Don’t think too hard about what looks good together….just go for it. Let the things you love surround you- even at work- and you can smile every time you look at it. Have fun with it!
